When you stay at home with a two year old and an 8 month old you are bound to have a different story everyday. Some days are success stories and others are epic failures. Today I’m sharing just a few entertaining mom fail moments that I experienced two weeks ago.
Mom Fail Moments: Crayon Catastrophe
I have slowly been removing naps from my two year old’s schedule. Neither of my babies are the best sleepers and I have been struggling to get my son to sleep through the night and stay in his room for a while now (no judgement needed people, okay thanks!). So as you can imagine, when you remove a nap from a two year old you increase your chances for tantrums and “special” moments. Enter this lovely experience of coloring on the floors.
Mom Fail Moments: Lunch in the shopping cart?!
I should have known that the events following this incident would be entertaining. After dealing with the crayon fiasco, I decided that I was going to go to the grocery store to pick up a few things for lunch and some ingredients for dinner. Naturally, I assumed that TJ wasn’t hungry. We had already had our breakfast and morning snack. It was also an hour before our usual lunch time. Once we got to the store, I went to the deli and picked up some chicken and went on through the store minding my own business.
As I get to the produce section of the store, a sweet elderly lady stops me and asks if I could help her reach an item on the top shelf. I immediately help her and turn my attention away from my two little monsters. Why did I do this?! I turn back around and what do I see? TJ eating a piece of chicken!
Yes, he decided to help himself to our box of chicken right there in the middle of the grocery store. I’m sure I’m not the only person who has experienced this sort of thing, but I can assure you it doesn’t make me feel any better. So many things ran through my head:
“I didn’t know he was hungry!”
“He better not waste a piece of that chicken now.”
“This is pretty funny though.”
“I hope they don’t kick me out of the store.”
“Well, at least he’s entertained.”
As you can tell, I have the tendency to go from one extreme to another. As I think back about this story, I can definitely laugh about it now. Can you spot the other mom fail in this photo? Yes, that’s right. Miss Ella is chewing on the grocery cart! The germaphobe in me is freaking out as I look at it. Ugh!
In honor of the many #momfailmoments that I’m sure we’ve all experienced, I’ll be sharing a few funny stories some friends have shared with me (with their permission of course). Be on the lookout for this fun post soon!
